Milan Lucic gives Danny DeKeyser a cup check

Danny Dekeyser learned a valuable lesson on Friday night: Don't turn your back on Milan Lucic.

Danny DeKeyser is going to be feeling this one in the morning.

Late in the second period in Boston Friday night Milan Lucic decided to give the young Red Wings defenseman a little tap in the worst possible area.

That's not a good look for Lucic.

He got away with it on the ice with no penalty called on the play, but there is always the chance that the NHL reviews it after the fact and hands out some form of discipline before Game 2. And that is something that will be interesting to see.

Who gets punished more: A guy that hits an opponent in the groin with his stick, or a coach for grabbing his own in protest of a non-penalty call?

Your move, NHL.
